Well, I have made a few more, because shades of pink and cream are very, very popular.
And these small bags also have a new teddy in the front pocket – the cuddly, fluffy teddy who fits in the pockets a treat and loves to be taken out and cuddled as well 🙂
Available at Markets and Fairs for £5.00 each, with the Teddy in the front pocket of course, and will also be for sale on Etsy, at the same price but with postage and processing added.
So, if you can make it to one of our markets, so much the better. And you can find the list of our Christmas Fairs which I will continue to adjust as we make new dates. The link is in the sidebar, of you can find the page here: See Teddy in a Bag at These Christmas Fairs
But, if this is not possible, please look at our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store, where I am sure you will find that these small bags with their lovely, fluffy teddy are still an ideal price for Christmas gifts.
These little crochet cradle bags are quite a novel idea.
Folded down, the bag makes a cradle for the teddy and then, turn the covers the other way and the cradle turns into a sweet little bag with a teddy inside!
Evidently, they are very popular in the US where they are called ‘Basinnet purses’, and children love them. I made some of these from a pattern by a lovely lady called Beverly A. Qualheim (her pattern is on Etsy here at BevsCountryCottage).
I have made several of these little cradle bags for markets (and perhaps for Etsy too) in a variety of colours and will be posting pictures of them over the next few days. And each teddy has its very own crochet blanket to keep it nice and snug 🙂
Each cradle bag complete with small teddy will cost £7.00 at markets and fairs (postage will be added if I add them to my Etsy shop).
Pretty Pink small bags with a teddy in the front pocket:
I’ve already posted a picture of the new, dark pink sparkle bags I am making (and putting small teddies in the front pocket of course).
But I’m also making these small bags in other shades.
Here are examples of the pink shades you will also find these pretty bags in.
Pale rose pink with a cream trim is always a favourite colour (it always reminds me of pink and cream icecream, which is why it might be my favourite 🙂 ).
But pink small bags also come in multi shades, from rose pink and candy pink, through to lilac and cream.
Here are four examples of these pretty bags:
Just like the pink sparkle bags, these small bags, complete with small teddy, are for sale at fairs and markets for £5.00 each (postage and processing is added to the online price).
So, these lovely little bags make an ideal gift which will be very much appreciated!
Backpacks make a gift which is useful as well as pretty and our crochet backpacks not only come in lovely colours, but of course every one has a small teddy in the front pocket.
Our backpacks are made in light rose pink (like the backpack here), baby blue, lilac, or red (a lovely colour for Christmas).
All backpacks have a cream trim and full cotton or silk lining to match the yarn colour used.
They have lots of room inside to carry toys, school books, or even to act as a pretty lunch bag, and the pocket is not only big enough to carry a 5 inch teddy, it is also roomy enough to take other items if you prefer.
At fairs and markets, each backpack with teddy will cost £8.00.
For anyone who wants to purchase one of these lovely backpacks, but cannot get to our fairs or markets in the Portsmouth area, I will also be adding them to the Etsy shop soon, but there will be an additional charge of £2.95 for postage, packing and processing when purchased there.
